The Right to Health and a Healthy Planet: Poor People’s Campaign Week 4
June 4, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Next week, we’ll be tackling our Week Four theme, The Right To Health and a Healthy Planet: Ecological Devastation and Health Care. We’ll be kicking that off with a rally in Springfield, MA on June 4.
Springfield was recently named the most challenging city in the US for Asthma. 42% of Springfield residents have incomes under $25,000.
We’re showing up because in 2016, 73% of adults cut back on basic needs and food so they could pay their medical bills. Because when General Motors complained Flint’s water was rusting their car parts, they were allowed to switch their water source, while the children of Flint are still without clean water. And in Springfield, we will no longer allow our government to ignore the health and environmental needs of our citizens.
